This collective is not intended to be a replacement for in-person education but to be a place for children to connect with other children, in-person for the support of their minds and emotions.

What Parents need to know:

  • All Study-Buddies will be interviewed, background checked and supported by Pastor Jess.
  • Lunch will include a home-made meal. A mixture of hot and cold lunches. We are happy to store and then serve pre-made meals for kids with food restrictions that are dropped off the morning of, by parents.
  • Physical activity will be organized and will range from basketball and other outdoor activities, to fun online workout videos for kids. Have your kids dress for this each week.
  • Art/Free time will at times be an instructed art class by Pastor Jess and Team. Other times we will let the kids relax and play games.
  • This collective is open to ALL children. If your children would like to invite their friends, we would love that.
  • We will have 3 classrooms and a large café for all of our planned events which allows for plenty of elbow room. We will continue to keep our spaces fresh and clean.
  • We ask that you make every effort prior to bringing your child to this collective each week, to evaluate and ensure they do not have, at a minimum, the following: abnormal fever, cough, body aches, green mucus, rash, or has vomited in the last 72 hours. Please help our efforts in cleaning and sanitizing by keeping children home who show any signs of illness. We greatly appreciate your efforts
  • High School students are invited, and our Youth Pastor, Gabby Groskopf will be present to interact with our older students. We understand that their socialization needs may not be met by the above schedule. Nevertheless, they are included, and we invite them to participate in whatever way adds value to their school year and to their mental and emotional needs. We will provide a different classroom for students 9th – 12th
